SM Entertainment has decided to add another concert date for its SM Town Live in Paris, which is planned for June 10, in response to the interest and support of fans in Europe.
The company said on Wednesday it decided to hold an extra concert on June 11 at Le Zenith de Paris.
Over 7,000 tickets for the first concert sold out in just 15 minutes when online booking opened on April 26. Tickets for it began to show up on the black market, and some 300 K-pop fans in France demonstrated in front of the Louvre on May 1 demanding another date.
Tickets sales for the new show will begin next Monday through online booking agencies including Live Nation (www.livenation.fr) and Fnac (www.fnacspectacles.com).
SM has held its Town Live concerts, which feature top pop groups such as TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls' Generation, SHINee, and f(x), in Seoul, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Shanghai. The concerts will return to the Tokyo Dome on Sept. 3 and 4 for some 100,000 fans.
